Turns out, there’s some serious money to be had in the morning news hustle! NBC wants to keep the Today show at the top of the TV game, so the network is willing to shell out the big bucks for big names to appear on the program. That expense seems to be paying off, too. Ratings between this and ABC’s Good Morning America seem to always be fighting for top spot among morning shows.
This even after Matt Lauer fallout in November 2017 and Megyn Kelly getting the boot in February 2019. The disgraced anchor, 61, had been pulling in an estimated $28 million a year and, according to Celebrity Net Worth, he’s valued at $80 million. As for Megyn, 48, the former Fox News host was making a salary of $18 million upon joining Today‘s payroll and she’s valued at $30 million.
After spending 11 years on Today, Kathie Lee Gifford has quite an impressive net worth, too. Before leaving the morning show in early April 2019, the 65-year-old racked up a net worth of $60 million. So, where do the other Today personalities — familiar faces like Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker — rank?
